Instead of sleeping in on National Day in preparation of the lazy day ahead, 9th August 2012 marked the first time many young people like myself woke up bright and early to head to Scape Youth Park in order to take part in the meaningful “Stand Up for Our Singapore” movement. Created out of love for Singapore’s elderly and mothers who are sometimes overlooked on public transport, the movement aimed to mobilise the rest of society to encourage each other to go the extra mile to care for each other, starting with these two precious groups of people by standing up for them on buses and trains.

A Curious Cat is snuggled in a sleepy hideaway on the third floor of Bras Basah Complex. Within the glass doors and the softly lit interiors, is a world of its own. Play with the colourful array of tin toys – robots, soldiers, planes and more - iconic playmates of a distant childhood.
